STREAM

Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics

 

The Holy Cross STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) Program's mission is to prepare young women and men for positions of leadership and responsibility in the college majors and careers of their choosing. In accordance with this mission, the 2016-2017 school year will welcome students who, through successful completion of the program, will go on to graduate from Holy Cross of San Antonio having completed a rigorous program of study that goes beyond the scope of any STEM program available elsewhere. Students will learn in a state-of-the-art science laboratory, an engineering/mathematics computer lab, and a programming/analysis lab. Religion and the arts will be interlaced to ensure the mind and spirit are properly nurtured for a holistic education.
